easier kix targets that was worth minimum 2400 points now will worth 1000 !!!

we will now have more options my arse ... variety my arse .... kix captains are exited my arse ... you can try mask it in all kind of words but bottom line we will get 1000 instead of 2400 and will have to chore 2.4 times harder then an already intolerable chore

    I've just read the Bounty briefing and I don't know what you're squealing about. Your knee jerk reaction has no basis till you've seen the targets.

    If the easiest level of employee bases are just the old ones rehashed and given a new name, then your little rant has some credence, but I think it's much more likely for the middle tier to be essentially the old targets and the lower tier to be genuinely easier and that's a good thing surely?

    That would also mean the new top tier targets are stupidly hard, but some like the challenge of finding the best way to do them and I think this could be a step in the right direction. Those without the latest and greatest toys might have a chance to earn some decent points instead of grinding out lesser targets for miserably low points.

    The assumption is that the targets we are familiar with fall into the Powder Monkey rank. For all we know the 97 is a Quartermaster. We won't know what target is where until the event starts. While it was one of the easiest of the recent targets, it is has been more of a mid level base in the long run.

    The only "safe" bet in my opinion would be saying the 93 and possible 112 ( I think those were the levels) will be at the Captain rank.

    Personally, I am withholding judgement until the event starts and we see what the targets in each rank actually look like.

    Why not up the your opponent base points? That would be a bigger help. The minimum point value should be  500 pts just to keep up with the the points needed to get prizes.

    The point of the changes isn't to cause anxiety and force people into targets they can't succeed in.

    The point is to offer multiple paths to success. Previously there was very little structure in how we approached this. Hopefully this will help folks chart a path forward more clearly -- not everyone is meant to be able to do every target, because not everyone is at the same place in the game. 

    Speculation has, historically, always been problematic. I'm happy to engage with constructive feedback, but doomsaying doesn't really get us anywhere, particularly when we're trying to address things based on feedback. :)

    the point is to lower the guaranteed payout. cause we all no 90 %of the time u get the lowest. and of course once you start and don't like you cant back out of bounty so

    Ok, guys, just tried the "lower payout" bases , they do more damage than the old kix bases, (unless you coined new corrosive armor on everything)!

    The level 70s powder monkey can be killed without taking damage from the single heavy scattergun in there.
    Playing this game is like trying to row a boat up a waterfall.
